Date set for 29th annual Don’t Die Wondering Golf Classic

Northwestern State’s longest-running summer tradition returns Saturday, Aug. 5 as the Lady Demon basketball team presents its annual Don’t Die Wondering Golf Classic at Northwestern Hills Golf Course.

The 29th annual golf tournament remains the largest fund-raiser for the Lady Demons program as it approaches the completion of its third decade.

Its impact goes beyond the operating money it generates for the Northwestern State program.

“The Don’t Die Wondering Golf Classic is such a great tradition for our program,” second-year head coach Jordan Dupuy said. “It is the biggest fund-raiser of the year for us, but it also allows us the opportunity to thank and interact with our fans who give us so much support throughout the year.”

The tournament is an 18-hole scramble with four-person teams competing. There will be an 8 a.m. flight and a 1 p.m. flight. Entry fees are $400 for a foursome or $100 for individual entrants.

Merchandise and prizes will be awarded and there will be low-gross and low-net handicap divisions.

Dupuy is in his second year as the tournament steward, carrying on the legacy started by James Smith, the program’s all-time leader in coaching wins.

“We are hoping to make this year the biggest one yet as we strive for 36 (teams),” Dupuy said. “I want to have both the 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. flights filled. We look forward to seeing everyone there. Let’s make the 29th annual Don’t Die Wondering Golf Classic the best one ever. Fork ’em!”
